DAW sleeves
« on: April 24, 2008, 12:47:07 PM »
I have been using DAW sleeves for my long distance bicycle riding. They work well for riding since they are thinner, and don't bunch up behind your knee. I do not use them for everyday work. The problem is that since they are thinner, they tend to get holes in them easily. I have tried silicone glue, bicycle tube patches and a couple of other things to patch the hole, but nothing seems to stick well. My next try is wetsuit cement. I have tried to contact DAW in San Diego, CA to no avail. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Tony

Don't waste your money on wetsuit cement. I've already tried that. I've had the same problem with DAW products. I only use Alps sleeves now. They last a lot longer.

I am also an avid bike rider.  I use an Ossur Iceross Sport liner.  It is also a thin (3mm) liner.   I haven't haven't had any problems with them bunching up behind my knee or developing any holes in them.

Good luck finding a liner that holds up to your long distance cycling.   :)
